The Autumn Foliage Front
The Autumn Foliage Front
70% of Japanese landmass consists of mountains. As a result, much of these areas are covered in trees meaning the autumn foliage is particularly beautiful the deeper into the hills you go. Moving in the opposite direction to the cherry blossom front of springtime, The Autumn Foliage Front begins in Hokkaido where winter's chill arrives first and slowly descends southwards. The best time for viewing the foliage in the Kanto area is around mid November.

Autumn in Akiyoshidai (Yamaguchi)
The geology on the Akiyoshidai plateau consists primarily of limestone rocks with the inevitable and resulting limestone caves being found in the area too. The scenery of wild autumn surrounding the dots of white limestone protruding from the ground produces an image not dissimilar to that of grazing sheep and is most beautiful.

Bonsai
To the Japanese, the art of bonsai is not just the growing of small trees in small containers but is an art to express their understanding of nature and life. By giving essential care to their beloved bonsai, pruning branches and roots, training the branches and cutting back new growth, bonsai artists create bonsai that will last for hundreds of years.
Megastores selling all kinds of gardening materials and equipment, showing just how much this hobby has spread throughout Japan, have opened in large numbers in recent years.
Gardening
Families garden according to the size of their gardens but recently many apartment dwellers have also begun to take a fancy to gardening on their verandas and in miniature gardens established as a new post retirement hobby.
